The view from the bottom

It was so nice to finally get away to camp in the backcountry. It’s been far too long. I had the chance this past weekend to visit one of my favorite places. From where we were, you could see the tip of one of the highest peaks in the park. The peak certainly wasn’t climbed… Continue reading The view from the bottom

Self care

Hey everyone! I felt like I should post an update since things around here have been pretty quiet this summer! About a month ago, I got my head bumped pretty good. I didn’t realize that how I was feeling was connected, but when I finally got checked out, it turns out that I’m healing from… Continue reading Self care

ORCKA

This past weekend I decided to take my level 3 with ORCKA after seeing that Gayle from Sometimes Eventful posted about the class that she took. I didn’t know that there was a relatively new place teaching ORCKA classes nearby. It all comes naturally. I can’t recommend them enough! I had always wanted to finish… Continue reading ORCKA

Recently… (well not too recently… But we were hiding a paddle so I haven’t been able to talk about it until now. Congrats to the paddle finder by the way!) I went… Continue reading Leave no Trace

Canadian Canoe Museum

If you’re ever in the Peterborough area the Canadian Canoe Museum is definitely a little hidden gem! I had the chance to visit the museum to help with another live video for the Paddle in the Park Contest. I’m not really a history buff myself, but I have to admit, it was really, really cool… Continue reading Canadian Canoe Museum

Wolf Lake

It’s been a relatively quiet summer; at least as far as any writing goes. I’ve been enjoying tagging along to help hide some paddles for the Paddle in the Park Contest. It’s been a blast! But obviously I haven’t been able to share any info about any trips until after the paddles were found. This… Continue reading Wolf Lake
